Dear Fellow Canadians,
Alas it seems that winter is still upon us. At least this seems to be the case when I looked out my window at the fresh snow covering the ground. The hopes and dreams of an early Spring crushed.
Yet instead of getting upset over the a few more weeks of cold, I decided, like I did the rest of this winter to embrace the deep freeze.
As an avid skier, I looked at the bright side of life, I may be able to get a few more runs in on the mountain.
I took to google to explore different locations to ski in Eastern Canada, and to my surprise I came across an article for the National Geographic that listed Mont Tremblant as one of the best ski resorts in the world.
Rubbing my eyes, I re-read that last part, no it didn’t say Canada, it did indeed say the world.
I had to find out more. According to the article, Tremblant offers some of the best skiing in eastern Canada with 94 different runs to ensure you have a variety of hills to explore, but also a world class village that is molded after ski resorts in Europe.
The village is apparently packed with hotels, patisseries, bistros, and colourful buildings that overlook narrow cobble roads. It sounded beautiful in my mind, and after seeing pictures, it turns out I was right.
Filled with delicious French cuisine, plenty of places to get your après ski party on, and of course for those that aren’t keen on skiing, great shops to pass the time.
The best part is, it is easy to get to Tremblant, with porter flights leaving right from downtown Toronto.
While it may be a little late to get there this season, after finding out more about Mont Tremblant it is definitely on my bucket list for next year.
Bring on winter 2018 why don’t you Mother Nature.
